Tow truck driver and man killed in Roseland shooting

Two men, including a tow truck driver, were killed in a shooting early Wednesday morning in Roseland in the far south of Side.

About 2:30 a.m., officers responding to a call about a person shot in the 11300 block of South Lowe Avenue found the 59-year-old tow truck driver and a 45-year-old man with gunshot wounds, Chicago police said.

It is unclear what sparked the attack, but police said the men exchanged gunfire, leaving the driver of the truck shot in the head and dead at the scene, while the other man suffered gunshot wounds to his body. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died, police said.

Their names were not immediately made public.

The case was handled by detectives from Area 2.
